While walking through antique stores have you seen those
floral plates with advertising on them?
Did your family have any?
When we bought 1515 my cousin Donna brought this one back to 1515.
a pretty little floral plate
my sweet Aunt Mary wrote on the back that it belonged to her mother my Grandmother.
I even found a picture of the shop.
Made my imagination go wild. Look at the hats in the window
What had did Grandmother buy?
They were open from the 1880s'-1930's on the town square.
was it the fur hat?
or her other fur had with her muff or the one she had in Nursing School in Chicago.
or this ornate one coming out of her parents house.
this is a picture of the Charleston student nurses arriving in Charleston.
They all have hats on, did they come from Kenoyers?
Grandmother is on the left
That is not the only one I have
Looks like this one was given out at Christmas
They were in business until the 1950's
I found this at a antique store. At the turn of last century just going over a County or 2 to visit someone was a trip and worthy of a Souvenir.
Did your Grandmother have any advertising plates or cups?
I need to carefully read my Aunt Annie's diaries and see if she tells about Grandmother going to Kenoyers and buying a hat.
